Merlin Ignite 105 Disc Carbon Road Bike
The Merlin Ignite is our new lightweight carbon road bike featuring thru-axles, flat-mount hydraulic disc brakes and a balanced geometry designed specifically to excel in long-distance events such as Sportifs and Gran Fondos or your regular day-long club runs. For longer rides you need a bike that’s light, reliable and most of all comfortable. With a slightly longer wheelbase and a front fork with a more relaxed angle you’ll enjoy a stable, predictable ride with none of the nervous, skittish feelings that can sometimes be associated with an out-and-out race bike. At crucial points in the Ignite frame more forgiving flex points have been cleverly engineered into the carbon layup to absorb vibrations and shocks increasing comfort even during long hours on rough road surfaces.
As fatigue sets in and the terrain becomes more challenging the Merlin Ignite is ready to help you excel in difficult conditions; we have specced the Ignite with the brilliant Shimano 105 R7020 11 speed hydraulic disc brake groupset. With each gear selection being precise and predictable you’ll find you use the wide range of gears more, riding more sensibly and leaving your legs feeling fresher for longer while the addition of safe, easily-modulated flat-mount hydraulic disc brakes will have you descending with new-found confidence regardless of the terrain or weather conditions.
A choice of Fulcrum or Mavic wheels and other great finishing components lets you customise the finer details of this great handling carbon road bike before our Merlin workshop technicians custom build your bike to your own spec. Choose your preferred wheels & tyres, stem-length, handlebar profile, cassette, chainring options and more to tailor your dream disc brake carbon road bike specifically for you. Whether you’re aiming to improve a personal-best time in your biggest cycling event of the year or are simply looking for a way to enjoy your weekly club runs in more comfort leaving you fresher for that well-earned café stop, the stunning Merlin Ignite will help you achieve your goals in style.
